Default Apt complexes with trees? Professional in 30's, moving to ABQ

I'm moving to ABQ in a few months, and now need to find a place to live - hoping for some help on where I should be looking.

I'll be working at UNM, am in my 30's, no kids. I don't have time for yardwork, but being originally from Portland, OR I'd really love someplace with TREES and greenery around to see from my windows... and thus I'm asking for suggestions because it seems many apt complexes are quite...sterile.

It has to have a washer/dryer (at least hookups) because I'll work crazy hours. Other than that - just a nice, safe place to live. Pluses would be close to hiking/biking/walking trails, relatively close to work, close to grocery stores/restaurants.... but most important would be a "park like setting" and washer/dryer in an area that I'm not going to have to dodge bullets (though it sounds like what most people consider "a bad neighborhood" is fairly tame compared to larger cities).

Any suggestions? Thanks for any help you can give me!

How much are you looking to spend per month? That answer is going to drive suggestions.

Speaking of driving, are you interested in riding a bike to work or taking the bus?
That answer, in combination with the first will drive better suggestions.

Most apartment complexes have irrigated landscaping - including grass.
UNM is also heavily irrigated and has the nicest landscaping in town.
UNM is the best location in town to ride a bike to and the second best - after downtown for mass transit.

Many places have access to good walking paths and trails, but those closer to the river or mountains have more.

My recommendation would be The Pavilions. They have the nicest landscaping of any apartment complex I've seen in Albuquerque. It is lush (by Albuquerque standards) and has a lot of trees. That complex meets all of your listed criteria except being close to UNM. You will be looking at a 20 minute commute.

I lived in the La Paloma complex for a while. It was nice and quiet, plenty of greenery, right by Whole Foods. Also not very close to UNM, though.

Check out Cloverleaf. Priced well, and very nice landscaping in my opinion.
